1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite?
I'd have to go with either painting or writing. I pick painting, at the moment.
2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
"Just" digital art and writing, more or less. "Did"...do....well.
3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
"Real" panting on an easel. Can't afford to buy the necessaries though.... :/ Ah, maybe one day... :)
4. Who is your favourite art creator?

Can't pick.
5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?
Depends on how you define it. By the original definition, "no", because it claims art comes from a "human imagination". Robots do not have that in the real/human sense.

1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite? (From music and books to cooking, whatever you'd consider "art". :))
Mostly that'll be music, although writing and painting (particularly Japanese) are things which I enjoy.

2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
Once tried to teach myself the electric guitar, but that nearly ended up in a self inflicted disaster (as well as blowing one of my speakers)

3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
Guitar, if I ever feel up to it. Being able to sit back and play the blues on the black-cat bone is a calming thought.

4. Who is your favourite art creator?

Don't have one.

5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?

Depends on how you consider what "art" is. At the moment, you can more or less argue that robots act on an algorithmic approach and art can be see to be more instinctive and emotional based. Until they can develop true AI, any art they may make can be considered as a medium through their programmers.

Thanks for the tag @someone123

1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite? (From music and books to cooking, whatever you'd consider "art". :)) Music for sure, as much as I love books and they hold a dear place in my heart, music is my everyday love.
2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which? I used to hip hop music and have been in a fair few bands in my life. I also wrote poetry and rapped for a while, I even performed in a poetry slam... :D
3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future? I feel like the ones I've practiced, are the ones I would like to continue in... I'm just lazy like that
4. Who is your favourite art creator? On current feeling... Madlib...
this beat is too good...

Hard to pick one I love all forms of art, but I would have to say film making. The story telling and emotion that can be captured to have a complete story told amazes me.

2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
Creative writing or poetry


3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?

Playing any musical instrument, drawing or painting


4. Who is your favourite art creator?

Leonardo Da Vinci

5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?

Sure it's art only without a soul.

I like lot's of art but I think I feel most drawn to digital art

2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
I love doing cross stitch and rock painting the most right now. I also enjoy colouring, origami and felt crafts. I used to do a lot of drawing and digital art but I don't do too much anymore (depression sucks!)

3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
I've always wanted to learn how to play the keyboard. Also knitting and crochet would be fun to learn!

4. Who is your favourite art creator?
I think Jessica Peffer. She a fantasy, digital artist who really inspired me growing up :)

5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?
Yes...I guess...art is art!

1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite? (From music and books to cooking, whatever you'd consider "art". :))
I think writing. Maybe music.
2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
I've done my share of writing. Weekly segments, comedic stories, and the like. I've dabbled in some light graphic design. I've studied music and can sing my share, as well as play some violin and piano.
3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
Writing's not bad. Singing's not bad. Not for others, though. Off my back, and everything's fine.
4. Who is your favourite art creator?

Beats me. Bach? Mana? Cornwell? Couldn't tell.
5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?
Yes. By-the-numbers art already exists, created by human beings. Some efficient and well-applied coding can, for example, get an input of the current culture, use some random variables and produce piece of cultural media, that can then be used to refine the random factor to more effective ranges. It can then be used to further alter not only the random variables, but also the fixed values, meaning that an AI could not only create pieces of art, but also keep it in motion. People need to understand that, as synthetic as AI can be at the moment, that is currently changing and it's becoming more and more organic.

1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite? (From music and books to cooking, whatever you'd consider "art". :)) ]
Music I guess.
2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
Music (mostly singing but sometimes playing guitar or viola. Used to play bass, piano, and some percussion but don't have access to those instruments currently.) I also write poems and other random shit sometimes.
3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
I wish I could draw or paint and would like to learn to play some kind of wind instrument. Maybe saxophone.
4. Who is your favourite art creator?
Right now I'd say Rick Maguire from the band Pile.
5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?
I guess. But I don't know if I like it.

Hey everyone! My favourite positive topic :)

1. Which form of art (creative pursuits) is your favourite? (From music and books to cooking, whatever you'd consider "art". :))
1. Music
2. Literature & poetry
3. Painting, drawing (incl. "modern canvas", like tattooing, etc.)
4. Cinema

2. Do you practice any form/s of art? Which?
I. Am. A. Sick. Perfectionist.

3. Is there any form of art you would like to practice sometime in the future?
I need to get back to my electric guitar. I used to draw A LOT. I'd like to write poems in English (already attempted) and for something completely new, I wish to paint when I have money to buy the stuff. Occasionally I colour in some art-therapy books because no creativity is required.

4. Who is your favourite art creator?
Sorry, too many, and it changes. In music, probably Tuomas Holopainen.

5. For a bonus, philosophical question...Can a robot make art?
Aesthetics is a philosophical topic I haven't yet thought enough about. A priori I'd say theoretically yes, it is possible, but I'm not sure current robots would be able to. Now what if they did and we presented them to people who wouldn't know a robot made them? They could consider it art, especially given what is sometimes considered art these days... Unless you don't ever separate the author from the art.
